After my post this morning I thought of another word that probably most accurately describes how I feel about the Yankees right now -- demoralized.
It is very early, though, and a few victories would do wonders for my state of mind -- and for that of Yankee fans everywhere.
The Tampa Bay Rays (off to a slow 12-16 start themselves) are at the Stadium tonight. Let's hope A.J. Burnett is on tonight and gets the Yankees headed back in the right direction again.
